Brad Rostratter, United States coach: We played with the fundamentals and tactically everything went well, Mexico also played well, they battled with everything they had but this is just one game I hope they continue to improve.

Nicola Negro, Coach of Mexico: We had a good first set against the United States but at the beginning of the second set we had technical difficulties, we left a lot of balls in the net there we lost control and obviously the United States opened the scoring so we must continue working to improve those failures.
